The Aro Valley Video Shop is a niche market video store located in Wellington.

Their original business systems ran on DOS based software called Video Overdrive, which was failing daily and no longer supported by the author. I was asked to analyse this software, reverse engineer the records and develop a new system to run the business. Thus Aropos was born, a system I am proud to say has performed without issue for the better part of a decade.
